Bubble in the desert

A blog I started whilst on a GE "Bubble" assignment in Nevada. I'm back in Cambridge (UK) now but still miss the desert and my friends out there.

Bear in local casino - on video

Bears are making the news around here at the moment. There is even footage from the security cameras showing a little bear (150lb) going to the local casino in South Lake Tahoe

We're going to shakespeare this week so I expect we'll see the regular bear down there.

To be honest, going home to my new house is a bit tricky. I make sure I have my bear bell ringing nice and loud, head torch on, bear spray handy and my camera. I wonder when we shall meet and how big it is. I just hope one of us has a good escape route and I hope the one that does is the hairy one. My new landlady said, "yes the bear is fond of our lovely condo too". Fear not, I sleep with bear spray and try to shut out all the noises scampering around outside on the walkway, be they people or other mammals. It's a little hard to tell the difference but some of the scampering seems to have that faint sound of claws touching wood. And frankly I don't know who was snoring last night. It may have been a neighbour (human) or it may have been something a tad more wild.

Don't get me wrong - I love the new house. Come and visit (PLEASE!).

The bear situation has gotten worse in the past couple years. Down near my house on Lower Kingsbury they are aggresive, breaking into my garage and sneaking up on us when we were sitting on the deck. The broke into my car once, but amazingly didn't do any damage. They opened the handle and let themselves in.
